Holiday season in Azerbaijan continues all the year round. Azerbaijan possesses rich and, in some respects, unique recreational resources. The remarkable nature of mountainous and foothill areas, treasured balneological resources, curative muds, amazing beauty of mountain lakes, waterfalls, sandy beaches of the Caspian Sea, vineyards and fig gardens of Absheron as well as abundance of sunshine create favorable conditions for a year-round recreation and therapeutic treatment.
One of the famous and popular resorts in the country – Bilgah – is located just 40 km away from Baku (which is the capital of Azerbaijan), on the northern coast of Absheron peninsula, among olive groves and vineyards.

Snow usually melts within a few days after each snowfall; withal, snow cover endures for about 5 days. The average relative humidity during a year fluctuates between 55% and 70%. Annual totals of sunshine hours make up to 2008 h.
Successful combination of Caspian air saturated with oxygen and remedial ions, warm southern sun which prolongs the bathing season from mid-May to October, of fine-grained sand beaches and gently sloping seabed that forms sandy shallows for tens of meters makes it reasonable to try out climatic thalassotherapy and heliotherapy here.

Alongside with the climate favorable for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, warm sea and comfy beach, another vital natural healing factor Bilgah is famous for is iodine-bromine mineral waters, the source of which is located directly in the territory of cardiology sanatorium, which, in turn, spans over a large park at the very edge of the sea.
